"The extraordinary development of Free and Open Source Software software that anyone is free to use, modify and redistribute has revitalized wider interest in collaborative creativity, the public domain and the openness of public institutions.
Structured around three ecologies: Governance, Creativity and Knowledge, this innovative Congress explored, through its structure and content, how Open Source inspired methods may transform art and its institutions by challenging conventional practices of authorship, ownership and distribution.
An array of international and UK participants artists, theorists, academics and activists Â shaped Open Congress through presentations, discussion, workshops and events.
Initiated by Critical Practice in collaboration with Chelsea College of Art and Design, NODE.London Season of Media Arts, Wireless London, Mute and Tate."
